I would not recommend this man to to care for your cancer needs, our experience was horrible and trust cannot be established with this doctor.

Dr Kossman makes you feel at ease at all times. Finding out that you have cancer is hard enough, but he explains everything and does not rush you in anyway. I came in with my list and we went thru it one by one.
